Equality of Opportunity and Vocational Training Five Years on...Vocational Training Measures for Women in the European Community. Synthesis Report and Recommendations.
Oels, Monika; Seeland, Suzanne
This document includes four chapters, a bibliography, notes, and two appendices. Chapter 1 briefly indicates the purpose of the report, to look retrospectively at innovative vocational training programs initiated for women in the European Community (EC). Chapter 2 describes general developments since 1978, including the legal background, the participation of women and girls in vocational training, and the situation of women in the labor market. Chapter 3 includes evaluative descriptions of whether the programs offered to women and girls met criteria for success; participants; training firms and training institutions; advisory, research, and evaluation measures; and sources of funding for the programs. Chapter 4 provides recommendations on vocational training for women in the EC in five areas: school and vocational orientation, labor market, vocational training, economic independence, and empowerment measures. The bibliography includes 13 national reports and 16 additional references. Appendix 1 provides a catalog of programs in three parts: programs for skilled occupations to which women had previously not had access; programs to assist women in securing occupational advancement and managerial positions; and programs for women entering or reentering the work force. Each entry gives program title, objective, and responsible organizations. Appendix 2 provides the guidelines for the evaluation and development of perspectives. (CML)
